There are several Dyna's out there with the 23. I don't know of a wide glide but most are using the wide glide front end though.

Yeah, the front sat there pretty much bottomed out. It had about 3/4" travel and you had to ride with the constant fear of hitting a pot hole or bump. I ride hard and it just wasn't for me. I wouldn't cut the stock spacers now that I think about it because the metal is pot metal. I would do the pvc thing. I havent tried it yet becaust I like the front end up better as it looks chopper ish. That is why I would try to relace a stock looking 23" hoop on the exsisting hub so I wouldnt have to replace the rear to keep it real low.

Diameter of 130-23 is 29.1 diameter of 90-21 is 27.8 inches. Thats 1.3 inches taller than your current so i think you want to drop 2 inches and you probably need to ditch the narrow fender as well.

How do you get a 1.3" taller tire to raise your bike 1.3"????

Think about it. Your hub is in the center of your wheel so it is raising it half of that. You bike isn't sitting on top of the tire like a jackstand.

Half of the 1.3 under the hub and the other half flying through the air not bothering anyone but a poor little fender.

Yes your correct. I think when he installs the 23 with 1/2 drop he will stand back and say WOW that looks fukin gay. Then he will adjust his drop in kit to lower it about 2 inches and say WOW thats just right, looks pretty fukin cool. Thats all i was getting at bud. JMO.
